Hadith #1

وبهذا الاسناد، عن سدير، قال: قلت لأبي عبد الله عليه السلام: جعلت فداك يا بن رسول الله هل يكره المؤمن على قبض روحه؟ قال: لا والله إنّه إذا أتاه ملك الموت ليقبض روح جزع عند ذلك، فيقول له ملك الموت: يا وليّ الله لا تجزع فوالذي بعث محمّداً صلّى الله عليه وآله بالحقّ لأنا أبرّ بك وأشفق عليك من الوالد الرحيم لولده حين يحضره، إفتح عينيك وانظر. قال: ويمثّل له رسول الله صلّى الله عليه وآله وأمير المؤمنين وفاطمة والحسن والحسين والأئمّة عليهم السلام. فيقول له: هم رفقاؤك. قال: فيفتح عينيه وينظر، وينادي روحه مناد من قبل العرش: (يَا أَيَّتُهَا النَّفْسُ المُطْمَئِنَّةُ -إلى محمّد وأهل بيته- ارْجِعِي إلَى رَبِّكِ رَاضِيَةً -بالولاية- مَّرْضِيَّةً -بالثواب- فَادْخُلِي فِي عِبَادِي -يعني محمداً وأهل بيته- وَادْخُلِي جَنَّتِي). قال: فما من شيء أحب إليه من انسلال روحه، واللّحوق بالمنادي.

(The same previous series of relaters) Sadir said: I asked Abu Abdullah (a) whether the believer is coerced to be had his soul seized? He said: No, by Allah. When the angel of death attends for seizing his soul, the believer shows impatience. There, the angel of death says to him: "O disciple of Allah, do not be worry. I swear by Him Who sent Mohammed (a) with the truth, I am more compassionate and kinder to you than a merciful father to his son. Open your eyes and look." In these moments, the believer will see the Messenger of Allah, Amir ul-Mu’minin, Fatima, al-Hasan, al-Hussein, and the Imams (a) in front of him. The angel will say to him: "Those are your companions." Then, a caller from the direction of the Divine Throne will call at his soul: "O soul that is serene -to Mohammed and his household-, return to your Lord well pleased -with the loyalty to the Prophet’s household- and He will please you -by means of the reward-. Enter among My servants -who are Mohammed and his household- into My Paradise." (89:27-30) Then, nothing will be more preferable for that believer than the sneaking of his soul and joining the caller.
